Inspired by the law of simplicity and Japanese aesthetics, the Half chair is the latest from Spanish studio Cuatro Cuatros.
November 23rd, 2016
Designed for Missana, Half is the latest piece to emerge from Spanish studio Cuatro Cuatros. The chair follows on from the light, Mart Stam inspired Trampolin seat launched earlier this year. This time, the Valencia based designers Cristina Ródenas and Adrián M. Almonacid have used oak semi circular legs in an thoughtful design of halves meeting halves.
The chair is inspired by Japanese aesthetics, and Gestalt psychology – the idea that the whole of an object or scene is more important than its individual parts. Or, as Anais Nin has said, ‘We do not see the world as it is; we see it as we are.’
Cuatro Cuatros’ hand made Half is a play on perception – its semi circular legs shaped in halves fit together seamlessly, creating a full circle when chairs are side by side. Even the upholstery reflects that very same half and full circle game, crafting a never ending visual perspective.
